The Colombian International, who is on season long loan at Stamford Bridge from AS Monaco, says he feels “OK” with life at the west London outfit and is optimistic that things will change for the better after the international break.

Chelsea have picked up just eight points from their openings eight premier League matches, while the club took the surprise step of issuing Jose Mourinho with a vote of confidence via their official website on Monday.

Falcao, who is on loan at Chelsea from Monaco, has only started once in the league this season, with six appearances off the bench.

The 29-year-old believes Mourinho’s side can bounce back to winning ways after the international break.

“I’m OK. Growing up, every day I feel better,” Colombian international Falcao said on Monday.

“If the results are not the best in Chelsea, we have the capacity to reverse the situation.”

Despite his lack of game time, Falcao will lead Colombia into their World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Uruguay.

Goalkeeper and international team-mate David Ospina said he had no doubts over Falcao’s form.

Ospina was quoted: “We know the quality of Falcao,” he said. “We are calm.”

As for his side’s clash against Peru on Thursday, Ospina said Colombia were wary.

“We must respect the work of Peru. They are excellent players with a mix of experience and youth. They have important players in their respective teams,” he said.

“They are strong defensively, and have a great goalkeeper with great forwards and are a very compact team.”

Radamel Falcao has scored one goal in seven Premier League appearances this season- stats which suggest that Mourinho’s decision to take a gamble on the South American has backfired.

This was also going to bee risky move for Chelsea. Falcao looked a shadow of the world class striker who scored goals for fun with FC Porto and Atletico Madrid, prior to joining Monaco, during his season-long loan spell with Manchester United last term.

Louis van Gaal decided against retaining Falcao- either on loan or on a permanent deal- but Mourinho was confident he could succeed where the veteran Dutch coach has failed

Unfortunately, it now seems certain that the serious knee injury Falcao suffered in January 2014 had a catastrophic impact on his ability to score goals at the highest level.

With reports that Chelsea have already decided against keeping Falcao for the 2016-17 campaign, it looks set to be a long season for Falcao in west London.
